Sorry to butt in.
My assessment is that Rob is no spinner.
On the other hand, you did once mention some affiliation with them.

v, mind like a trap! Indeed, Yes. Briefly. Thankfully.

Thankfully brief?
Your discussion here puts me in a certain mood, but not one I feel much like expounding upon in a public Grateful Dead forum, although your persistent proposed premise that one is taking a leap of faith, regardless, does not set well with me. Faith and belief systems are integral to many peoples lives and outlooks - I can only hope that yours are based upon some solid life experiences of your own. Probably my most fundamental spiritual experiences (ie: that I actively participate in) revolve around music – and as stated elsewhere in a post this evening, the music sounds much better when dancing!

The Spinners in '88/'89 were tending to a view of Garcia as a new Christian prophet. Once that became clear I was running out the door. When I saw the type of gender roles enforced it just made me run faster. So, thankfully brief.

I don't quite understand your post v, and I don't want to guesstimate. I am interested in what you have to say.

While there is much we could discuss here, I do not feel so inclined at present and apologize again for jumping in. Thanks for sharing your experience though – I had been wondering about that.

Where I place myself today with regard to matters spiritual is the result of a long, varied and sometimes colorful exploration of what it means to be an individual on this earth, and what responsibilities that may require of us. I wish to be an instrument of peace, as so beautifully stated in the prayer of St. Francis. But experience has provoked in me a sense of skepticism about faith in anything other than my own abilities and desires to do right, even as these frequently evade me.

I believe that I grasp what both you and Rob put forth, and have to say that I am more cynical now than ever before regarding religion and faith. I wish to let this go now, and pick this song as a sign off. Peace
